Welcome to Spark Overland

This is the first posting on Spark Overland. With this blog, we want to share our perspective on overland travel. We are a family of four and we travel by Landrover Defender 110, mostly within Europe.

We would like to help anybody with their own overland travels or plans by sharing our experiences in preparation and traveling. With time, you can expect posts about our destinations, routes and of the equipment we use and modifications we do to our vehicle and camping stuff.
